You may reach Niquidetto either form Valle di Viù, road to Colle del Lys from Fucine, or from Valle di Susa, road to Colle del Lys from Almese.


From Niquidetto, take the dirt road leading to Muande Freste (1432 m – 45 minutes). From Muande Freste proceed at the back of the pasture huts, cutting through the mountain slopes. After a good climbing stretch, enter the valley closed by the three Civrari summits. Skirt the Civrari small lake (1956 m) leaving it to your left. Having passed the lake, with a last climb reach Bocchetta del Civrari (2170 m) and turn right. The trail climbs a small grassy crest. Just before arriving to the summit of the grassy bump characterizing the crest, ignore the entrance to a trail. Shortly descend so as to arrive at a small pass and then climb along a little crest of surfacing rocks leading to the Civrari summit (Punta Imperatoria 2320 m). A big cairn stands on the summit. The view is wide and breathtaking.

Descend backwards along the ascent trail.
